Fresh Finds Friday!

Goodness me, it seems like only yesterday I was posting some pictures and talking about our weekend and here we are at Friday again.  This week has whizzed by, mostly because I've been hustling to get stuff wrapped up in work and hope to finish up completely next week (eek!).

Fresh Finds Friday Mel Wiggins Blog

+  Unless this baby makes it's way out of here by then (and maybe even still) I'm really excited that my mates at Brown Lemonade are putting on their first gig on the road at Hillsborough Court House with the spine-tingly tones of David C Clements to listen to & really awesome local food & drink producers as well.  Feb 27th - Get your tickets here!

And Now The Weather

+  We are HOOKED on Luther right now.  And by hooked, I mean I spend most of each episode hiding behind my maternity pillow.  Intense but amazing TV.  Have you watched?

+  Colin Beavan - the guy behind the 2009 Documentary 'No Impact Man' (which I wrote about here) has released a new book called 'How to Be Alive' and I can't wait to get reading.

+  In case you missed some of my latest posts:  A round up of my top eco/ethical baby essentials, DIY body butter & thoughts on Slow Activism, including 3 key habits for long-lasting social change.
